Definitely on the nice list

one of the great gifts Indio received.
Indio is finally old enough to really *get into* Christmas traditions. We weren't traveling over Christmas this year [a rarity for us since our extended family is scattered all over] so we were able to begin some of our own traditions.

Yesterday afternoon, we watched, Elf, a movie that is loved by all in this house. We had a small dinner party with a few family members who live in the NY-area and we are looking forward to seeing other cousins later today.
Indio slept in until 8:30am this morning. That was a Christmas treat for me and E that I hope turns into a family *tradition*! He was so excited to open his presents and completely enthralled with each one. I was a bit worried he might throw certain gifts aside [clothes, books] in an effort to play with the more *fun* things like his action figures and vehicles, but he really did seem to love them all.

Indio wasn't the only one that made the nice list. Instead of conventional presents, E and I decided to book a trip to Punta Cana! I can't wait to feel the sun on my face and sand on my toes!
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. What traditions do you have? Which ones have you created for your own family?

4th Trip Around the Sun

Happy birthday to the funniest, snuggliest, most adorable 4 year old I know.

Dear Indio,

You have made my life so much sweeter. Your smile is enough to get me out of bed in the morning, even if it is at the crack of dawn. As you grow into the little man you are, you continue to amaze me with your curiosity and love of life.

 I didn't think it was possible, but I love you more each day.


[Of course, I had to include a look back to day 1.]

'Tis the season

. . . for our annual Santa Snapshot.  Indio wasn't enthralled with the idea of sitting on a strange man's lap, but he warmed up quickly enough to get one decent photo.
And just for fun, here's a look back . . .
We don't have a photo from 2008 because Indio was only a wee 10 days old on Christmas Day.  Have you started preparing for the holidays?  What traditions have you started with your family?
